Workplace Wellness: The Link Between Food and Productivity

Last post, we talked about what should be in a healthy plate of food.  I thought of sharing this infographic on workplace wellness  courtesy of Compliance and Safety.  Most of us work either in a typical office, an institution or even at home.  When we work, we need to be well-nourished to sustain us for the day's tasks.  I think it's something that employers (or home owners) must not overlook so as to get the optimum productivity out of everyone.  I have already sent a copy of this to our human resources manager as well as the manufacturing manager.  Hope it gets a good exposure somehow.  A lot of workers could really benefit from this.

  1. I do hope companies pay more attention to the kind of food available in their pantries. Even when the food isn't free, or subsidized, it would help if they have regulations about what can be served.

  2. I agree 100% Vera. It's one of those things that is somehow neglected or put on the sides. I believe it's one of those small things that greatly impact productivity in the long run.

  3. I agree, if the employees are well-noursihed, everyone in the company will benefit from the result.

  6. Employee lang din ako hahahah! But if I were an employer, it would be a must na only healthy foods will be served sa canteen.

  7. i think this idea could work on schools as well, canteens should offer healthy foods rather than junkfoods and sodas

  8. I remember some years ago, a school did that. Before, kids were agitated and hyperactive. They introduced whole, natural foods in the cafeteria. Little by little, it was observed that there was less aggression and kids performed better and were in better moods. All because they stopped serving junk in the cafeteria. As they say, garbage in, garbage out. They did the reverse of that.

  9. eating junk food eventually leads you to eating more while eating fruits will give you a full tummy for awhile.

  10. This is a very informative and I think all cafeterias must advocate healthy eating too for their employees to be productive and not feel sluggish especially towards their end of shift :)

  13. Great post, sis. Very helpful. Since "a little bit of dark chocolate goes a long way..." it's a great excuse for me to indulge every now and then with a handful of chocolates. ;-) Kidding... ;-)

  14. Schools do this, it's time workplaces should do this as well. :)

  15. Good food at work, specially when working at home, seems to be impossible, at least in my case. I tend to eat anything the kitchen has to offer.

    I'm going to start preparing more of these type of food for the family. My little boy has been getting too much processed meat and junk. Must be the reason also why he's so hyper these days.

  18. Ooohh I love Dark Chocolates! :) If only corporate offices could supply us with free goodies, I'm sure they could expect highly productive employees. hehehe!

  19. I advocate for this too. Sometimes we forget that we spend as much time at work as we do at home. Healthy food should never be neglected.

  20. Nice infographic. Proves the point that you should eat well so that your work life isn't affected in ways such as sleepiness

  21. This is very ideal and should be promoted not only in schools but also in offices both private and public and even at homes too. The effectiveness of this lies on the hands of the government. They should be serious in considering health projects that could benefit the community and the country as a whole.


    PS. Sorry Sis, na late ang comment ko, nagloloko kasi comp namin at home.

  28. Another great health tips for us. We have free meals before but the food only relies on what the canteen is cooking everyday. Mostly oily and unhealthy foods. It's just a relief that it was removed and converted to cash na lang. Hehe
